Leather has been a longtime fashion go-to for edging up and elevating almost any casual ensemble – the leather moto jacket, leather leggings, and lately, leather-sleeved sweatshirts, tees, and even shorts and skirts. It never fails to make your look a little more bad-ass and effortlessly cool, and a little less like you just rolled out of bed and threw something on (even if you did). Peplum, on the other hand, is the epitome of girly sophistication – flirty, ruffly, and chic – helping to adding shape where you might need a little more va-va-voom, or emphasizing killer curves you already have. Put your hands together and you've got yourself a seriously stylish, flirty-meets-tough girl effect that's not too intimidating to pull off. From peplum leather tanks – which pair perfectly with slacks, denim, or even your favorite pencil skirt – to peplum leather dresses, skirts, and jackets, these trendy pieces straddle the line between edgy and sophisticated, and can be easily transitioned from work to play!
